About Royal Oak

Royal Oak Nursing and Rehab is committed to providing your loved one with the highest quality of skilled care in the St. Louis area.

Whether nursing and rehab is required short-term or long-term, our goal is always to make our home your home!

Serving The St. Louis Area For Over 100 Years


Royal Oak Nursing and Rehab has proudly served the St. Louis and area for over
100 years. We began as the Frisco Rail Road Hospital and transitioned into a nursing home in the 1960s.

We are located in the historic Central West End, right across the street from Barnes Jewish Hospital. This makes it easy for nearby friends and family to visit. Active residents will enjoy that we are within walking distance to the Metro Link Bus Station at Kings highway and Laclede Ave, as well as the St. Louis Library on Lindell Blvd. Residents also enjoy our close proximity to Forest Park—which is home to The Muny, the St. Louise Science Center, and the St. Louis Zoo.

We ensure the full comforts of home for our valued residents, as well as the modern facilities required to carry out each resident’s personalized care plans. To further improve the quality of care, we have just started a full remodel of our facility to be completed summer 2016.

We now have a state-of-the-art therapy and rehab gym, and the technology required to expand our in-house skilled services.

Resident rooms have been redesigned to be more comfortable and functional. We have also updated our shared resident areas to create versatile spaces to socialize and entertain.

Daily Activities

The St. Louis community gets involved to help us ensure a versatile range of activities for our residents. We have local volunteers and church groups, who come in to host one-on-one and group activities.

Barbecues, Happy Hours, and in-house block parties are just a few of our routine activities that our residents enjoy” please change it to – “Barbecues, Happy Hours, and in-house block parties are just a few of our routine activities that our residents enjoy

We host a monthly birthday party for residents, multiple holiday and seasonal events, and fun-filled activities.

We also provide transportation to Dr. appointments on an as-needed basis.


Our goal is to provide each of our residents with menu selections that are both nutritious and delicious. Upon admission, each of our residents will meet with the Dietary Director and Registered Dietitian. During this visit, dietary needs will be identified, and personal dietary preferences will be discussed. While the daily menu is scheduled well ahead of time, residents can always choose from our delicious set of alternate menu selections.
In our effort to encourage an active and healthy social life, we offer restaurant style dining for all three meals each day. However, our residents are always welcome to dine in the comfort and privacy of their room. The choice is theirs.

All of our meals are well-balance, home cooked, and have as many fresh ingredients as we can source locally.

Our dining room features comfortable seating, elegant décor, and the atmosphere of a local St. Louis restaurant.



We offer multiple on-site amenities, designed to enhance quality of life. Our fully emodeled amenities include:

  • Enhanced dining experience
  • Group Activity Room
  • Beauty Salon
  • Therapy Gym
  • Wi-Fi throughout the facility
